Raising Geeks

Growing up, I wanted to have two kids. A boy named Josh and a girl named Mercedes. Josh would naturally be the big man on campus, and when I say that, imagine me saying it the way your grandmother says it when she asks you about school. "How's school, Josh?

She'd be involved in dance and gymnastics and all … [Read More...]

How To Assemble Furniture

FB Ikea

Yesterday I tried to put together a television console we had purchased for the play room. Nothing fancy, just an Ikea clearance item we picked up a few weeks ago that I was tired of Andy giving me the annoyed face about every time he tripped over the heavy box going out to the garage. I'm a … [Read More...]

While in Mexico, I fell in love with the gorgeous hand embroidered dresses the Mayan women were selling in their shops.

Seven Days in Mexico

Tres Rios

As we sat on our canopy bed along the beach, sleeping under our straw hats and dark sunglasses, two thin figures stepped into our sun. They were young, maybe 20, with tan skin and spiky jersey shore hair and hands full of glossy flyers. Heyyyyy you wanna go to Coco Bongo? I'm sorry what? Coco … [Read More...]

Jellyfish Hands

The rash

Sometimes when I go to Mexico- and by sometimes I mean both times I have ever been there- I get a condition I call jellyfish hands. Basically I break out in an intense full body rash that makes my hands sting like I've been fisting jellyfish and I'm unable to use them as anything other than … [Read More...]

Last Call Brittany: Confidence Between the Sheets

LCB Between the Sheets

I recently wrote about my journey to have sex everyday for a year. It was a year, not only of getting off and praying the vasectomy took, but also learning a ton about my body; what I liked, what I hated, and how to be my own biggest fan and advocate in the bedroom. Insecurities, dreading being … [Read More...]

Adulthood. You’re Not Doing It Right.

Soft Cup

I feel like there are tons of things about being a woman or an adult or even a mom, I should know. And it's only when I come into a situation in which I should clearly be able to effectively function, that I realize, I have no idea what I'm doing. Somebody take away my Thirty Card. And my … [Read More...]
